Whether you’re working from home as a result of the global pandemic or still traveling to the office every day, finding new ways to live with sustainability begins by turning your head in the morning. If you now work constantly from home, you will completely lose your usual commute to work, and with this you will already make a big difference in carbon dioxide emissions and your individual carbon footprint. The key now is to start using the time you would travel for physical activity, which will also be good for your health in the long run. If you still have a trip in the morning, maybe now is a good time to imagine some ideas, you can try to change your usual routine for healthy activities, which is good for the environment. The list below should give you some ideas for activities that can replace your trip if you work close to home, or inspire you to become more active in the “new normal” we all live in now.
Cycling or arranging
Our first suggestion is to throw away the car and try riding a bike or (non-electric) scooter instead. This will not only give you a workout in the process, but will also allow you to move your body in anticipation of a long day sitting in front of a computer screen. Cycling will also take you back to your youth, when life was a little more carefree, reducing stress and giving you mood before you start tackling the tasks you have to perform.
Roller skates or blading
Another option you can try is rollerblading, or if you are a little older school, rollerblading. Although not everyone has the balance and stamina to participate in these activities, as your fitness levels increase, you will find that over time it becomes easier and easier. A little practice also goes a long way. We must also mention that your calves will thank you in the coming months, and the activity itself will most likely leave you in the best shape of your life.
Another way to switch your morning trip is to consider one of the most popular leisure activities in the world, namely skateboarding. The industry is expected to cost $ 2.4 billion by 2025 in the United States alone, and you certainly won’t be the only one to do so. A skateboard can be a great way to start your day while giving you access to physical activity, which is a lot of fun. Carefully plan the hills of your new trip and be sure to wear hand, head and foot protection at all times
Last but not least, if the office is located near your home or you just want to keep track of the time you used to travel before the lock, with something more productive than breaking into your work directly, there can be nothing more better (or easier) than a good old-fashioned walk. People who walk even just a few times a week are known to have a better quality of life, a longer life, and are less likely to fall into health risk categories such as obesity throughout their lives. Going for a walk, even just a light walk, can have a big effect on your life and is a great way to get rid of CO2 emissions once and for all.
